Reddit’s Just Rolled into the Shop is a veritable cornucopia of the many wonders and oddities of shop lyfe. You never know what’s gonna roll in. Here’s what caught my eye this week.

Luckily it was raining the day it happened and my guess was it was more of a sand mix cause it was very powdered, the pressure washer took it right off. we rust proofed with an acid solution the bare steel areas and under coated the next day. It’s not any more caustic than the sea air and brine solutions we use in the winters in NJ. It was prolly the first time the undercarriage had a bath in the ten years it’s been on the road.

These transit vans have a rubber flex coupling between the tail shaft and driveshaft so any vibrations would have been dampened

Pics don’t do justice. [The turbo is] about the size of a basketball lol

Can’t even lie, I’d be terrified to drive it 😂

...We are going to polish it, ceramic coat it, and put ppf on the back bumper to help keep the rubber from destroying the paint...

2006 Altima

Customer called for interior detail and mold removal and odor removal. And then this showed up. We sent them on their way after finding this because it would be pointless to give it the extreme detail they wanted until the leak is addressed

Drove off the main road in front of our place clipped the curb went airborne hit 2 of our rentals totaling them and flipped and landed. We only had 2 rentals to rent out that day. Customer cars were on the other side of the sign thankfully.

The driveshaft also walked around on its way out and ripped the main battery cables and part of the switch out so the switch was see through lol. This was caused by a random rock hitting it while they were going pretty fast so that is why it broke the trans like that.

...One occupant and they were fine. No injuries

Valve body has metal debris in it...

The debris scores the bores and causes fluid to leak past and try to enter other bores, thus attempting to engage more than one gear, causing this tremendous fuckery lmao

Crazy part, none of the mounts are bad.

Dealer strung the customer along for 6 months adding freon and coolant. Once the warranty expired they quoted 9k to do heater core, evap core and unplug drain line. While we were way less than 9k I recommended customer contact Volvos corporate office to try to get compensation.
